DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which blocks email headers from being spoofed and email content from being manipulated. This is done by adding a digital signature to each and every email sent from an email address under a certain domain. The signature is published on the basis of a private key that’s available on the outgoing SMTP email server and it can be verified using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any email with changed content or a forged sender can be recognized by mail service providers. This technology will increase your online safety enormously and you will know for sure that any email message sent from a business collaborator, a banking institution, etc., is genuine. When you send messages, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that appears to be fraudulent may either be tagged as such or may never enter the recipient’s inbox, depending on how the given provider has decided to deal with such email messages.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Web Hosting

If you order one of the Linux shared web hosting that we’re offering, the DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality will be enabled as standard for any domain name that you add to your shard hosting account, so you won’t need to set up any records or to do anything manually. When a domain name is added in the Hosted Domains section of our custom-developed Hepsia Control Panel using our NS and MX resource records (so that the emails associated with this domain will be handled by our cloud platform), a private key will be created straight away on our mail servers and a TXT resource record with a public key will be sent to the global DNS system. All addresses created with this domain will be protected by DKIM, so if you send out emails such as regular newsletters, they will reach their target audience and the receivers will know that the messages are legitimate, as the DomainKeys Identified Mail feature makes it impossible for unsolicited individuals to spoof your e-mail addresses.

DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you choose any of the semi-dedicated servers that we’re offering, you will be able to use the DKIM option with any domain name that you add to your new semi-dedicated hosting account without any manual intervention, as our cutting-edge cloud platform will create all the needed records automatically, as long as the domain uses our name servers. The latter is needed for a TXT record to be created for the domain, since this is how the public key can become available in the global DNS database. The private key will also be added automatically to our mail servers, so anytime you send a new email, it will carry our platform’s e-signature. The number of unsolicited bulk messages continues to grow every year and quite frequently false email addresses are used, but if you use our hosting services, you and your clients or associates won’t have to worry about that.
